No sinus infection or brain tumour symptoms, I have runny nose

no sinus infection or brain tumor... symptoms ia have runny nose and congestion around the nasal cavaties I have had an EKG and CAT scan- my heart is fine and there’s no sinus infection or brain tumor. My white blood cell count is 3 times the norm and my cholesterol is twice the norm. The symptoms I am having have been going on since October 2008. My symptoms are: runny nose and congestion around the nasal cavaties of my nose, face numbness, tingling in left hand, some chest pain but it comes and goes, headaches, decreased attention span, extreme difficulty in concentrating, some dizziness, not able to focus eyes properly, feel like ears are stopped up and can’t hear good, excessive fatigue, sleeping too much or in short spans, feel panicky inside, extremely depressed, cry a lot, ongoing sore throat and chronic cough, sneezing, eyes burning, chest congestion, and I am doing things that are destructive like driving too fast and missing a lot of work. I have been diagnosed with PTSD and my family has a history of Bipolar, Heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Could this be PTSD, Bipolar, or something medical like mold poisoning ?

You clearly appear to have a chronic upper respiratory infection/allergy which needs treatment from a ENT doctor. Regarding the PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) do not be worried about the label but try to sort out your abnormal sleep pattern with your family doctor or a psychiatrist.

hello, i was just wondering if i am having symptoms of a sinus infection. i have a runny nose(sometimes stuffy), headaches, coughing, fatigue, and this morning i woke up without being able to taste anything. i do not have chills, so im thinking its not the flu...

The past week, I have been suffering from allergy symptoms such as runny nose, sinus pain, and sneezing. Over the last 2 days, I have had additional symptoms such as chest congestion and the feeling of pressure in my ears (probably a secondary infection from all the fluid built up in my sinuses). None of this is uncommon for me as my allergies have been problematic for me since I was a baby. However, tonight I noticed that I have suddenly developed large blue spots on the ventral side of both arms, approximately 4 inches or 10 cm in diameter. I am not experiencing any shortness of breath (I am actually breathing easier now than I was yesterday, when my allergy symptoms were at their worst), and my resting heart rate is normal for me (78; and usually I m in the 72-80 range) so I do not think it is cyanosis.

For the past month or so my right hand side nostril leaks 2-3 drops of clear fluid (no taste/smell) whenever I lower my head e.g. bend over, lie face down. No obvious inflamation/obstruction or recent cold, flu, or nasal/head/eye injury. I am male, mid 50's with no allergies, headaches, etc. and occassionally snore if lying on my right side (so I am told!) Septum has always been slightly 'curved' towards right hand side so nasal lining will touch sides during a cold. Non smoker. My partner cannot see any obvious nasal obstruction/swelling/lump but cannot see as far up the right nostril.

hello. i have no idea if i have a cold or flu or what. i was looking online but they say a cold you would have a runny nose. i do not but my nose is a little plugged [i can still breathe..and i thinks its been like this before..i dont think its allergies because i am not sneezing] i was coughing (it's getting a little better). i do not have a headache or puffy eyes. i started feeling bad (sore throat- it hurt to talk and swollow) maybe on the 19th or 18th [every so often coughing really bad as well] and i have been taking plenty of Airborne. Today my throat does not hurt when i speak (it doesnt hurt when i swollow..it just feels odd) and i have not been coughing as much (maybe 1/2 or 1/4 of what i was coughing like]. Is this a cold or flu or what? and is it contagious [still? how would i know if it was] ? i do not want to get my family sick and i would like to haang out with a friend this weekend.

Hi there. I was feeling really run down for a few weeks and then I had a flu (proper flu). Was hoping that would be the end of it, but two weeks after the bout of flu I still feel really exhausted - so haven t been back to the gym. I kinda feel like only half my heart and lungs are working - ie quite weak. My voice also sounds tired. Feel worn out and depressed and head feels like it could explode (although don t have headache as such). Have had a runny nose the past couple of days and noticed blood in my mucus - and have just had a nose bleed. Any advice?
